BRUNSWICK, Maine - Former Bowdoin soccer and lacrosse player Ben Brewster '14 (Cape Elizabeth, Maine) has signed a professional contract with the Tulsa Roughnecks of the United Soccer League.

Brewster, a former All-American for the Polar Bears, is one of the first two official signings for the Tulsa club, which will be in its inaugural season in 2015.

A four year starter Brewster earned a reputation as one of the finest defenders in Division III soccer. He was named the NESCAC Rookie of the Year following his freshman season, earned second team All-Conference honors after his sophomore year and first team All-Conference honors after each of his final two seasons.  He was also named First Team All-New England following his junior and senior seasons.

Brewster completed his decorated collegiate career by back-lining a Bowdoin defense that allowed just 16 goals his senior season.  His play earned him a spot on the First Team All-American Team as named by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

He was one of only seven Division III players that were eligible for the 2014 MLS Draft.  He has played two seasons in the PDL for Seacoast United in Hampton, New Hampshire.  As team captain in 2014, he led Seacoast to the Northeast Regular Season Championship with an 11-1-2 record.

The Roughnecks will begin official training next week in preparation for their first season in USL.  Tulsa will open the regular season on Saturday, March 28 by hosting the Oklahoma City Energy at ONEOK Field.
